1Well, the hotels aren't cheap, but if you don'tstay in the centre then you can get a goodhotel at very reasonable rates, and you caneat out quite cheaply if you know the rightplaces to go. The food is fantastic by the way.
2 The Golden Gate Bridge, for sure. You shoulddefinitely walk across it. It's amazing!
3 Er, the old-fashioned Victorian architecture,I guess, and the cable cars, of course. Thefood is very varied and cosmopolitan, andthe views, too, I guess, over the bay area.
4 Loads. There's the bay area, you mustn'tmiss that. There are lots of parks, greatshopping at Union Square. You shoulddefinitely go to Fisherman's Wharf, and thesea lions at Pier 39 are well worth a visit.You mustn't miss Chinatown, either. It'sthe biggest outside China with some greatmarkets. You have to stay there at least fivedays if you want to see everything.
5 Sure. There are three airports and they' re allwell connected. You can take the subwaysystem or coach, bus, train. No problem.
6 Yeah. You have to take a day trip to Alcatraz.It's quite expensive, but it's well worthvisiting.
7 Well, it's on the coast but it's not really thatkind of city. It's hardly ever hot enough tosunbathe or go swimming.
8 Anytime is good, but the warmest days areSeptember and October. It's generally quitemild, so you'll need a coat whenever you go.
9 You should definitely walk, and take a cablecar. It's the best way to see the city. Parking'sa problem, and anyway you don't really needa car. There are lots of ferries and buses, too.
10 Pretty good. It's not famous for it, though, soyou really ought to check what kind of placeyou want to go to. There are a few good livemusic bars, I guess.
